Former wrestler turned movie star, Dwayne Johnson has revealed that he and his entire family tested positive to the deadly coronavirus.
Dwayne Johnson announced the news on Wednesday, September 2 in an 11 minute video he posted on his official Instagram page.
“I wanted to give you guys a little helpful update on things that have been going on on my end for the past two-and-a-half to three weeks now,” said Johnson.
“So the update is this: my wife Lauren as well as my two baby girls and myself, we have all tested positive for COVID-19.”
In the video, he added: “I could tell you that this has been one of the most challenging and difficult things we have ever had to endure as a family, and for me, too, personally as well. And I’ve gone through some doozies in the past.
“Testing positive for COVID-19 is much different than overcoming nasty injuries, or being evicted, or even being broke, which I have been more than a few times.
“My number one priority is to always protect my family.”
“We are counting our blessings right now because we’re well aware that it isn’t always the case that you get on the other end of Covid-19 stronger and healthier,” said Johnson.
“It baffles me that some people out there, including some politicians, will take this idea of wearing masks and make it part of a political agenda.
“It has nothing to do with politics. Wear your mask. It is a fact. And it is the right thing to do.”
Johnson said that he and his family contracted the virus from family friends, who he said are “devastated” that they unwittingly spread the virus.
“I wish it was only me who tested positive, but it wasn’t, it was my entire family, so this one was a real kick in the gut. But I am happy to tell you guys that we as a family are good. We’re on the other end of it, we’re on the other side. We’re no longer contagious, and we thank God that we are healthy.” He said
